Shunta Davis of Lipsey Middle School, above, reads last Tuesday to third graders during the beginning of their time together at the St. James Reading Program. Meanwhile in another room Keosha Hooker of Mamie Martin, left, leads first graders in reading exercises. The weekly reading program was started at St. James Missionary Baptist Church in reaction to the Third Grade Reading Gate test that helps build reading and comprehension skills in children ranging from kindergarten to third grade. The program will resume today at 6 p.m.
